Certified as a spray-tan master salon by Norvell Skin Solutions, Sun Seekers Tan Spa deploys a squad of savvy technicians to aid patrons in donning sun-kissed skin tones. After outfitting guests in protective eyewear, staff members, like professional penny refurbishers, spritz bodies with a coppery coating that is customized to different skin types. Clients can also repose in a level 1 or 2 KBL America tanning bed for 15-, 12-, or 11-minute sessions.

Sun Seekers stocks a menagerie of tanning lotions from such brands as Devoted Creations and Supre Tan, and employees readily recommend the ideal ointment for customers hoping to spurn tinted exteriors. Clients can contrast newly burnished limbs against the lobby's royal-purple walls before blending into its plush-brown rug or the mantelpieces of bronze medalists.

Back in 1999, brothers David and Rick Kueber noticed a lag in business at their chain of video-rental shops during the summer months, when no one wanted to be cooped up inside watching movies. The two put their heads together and found a rather unconventional solution to their problem: tanning beds. They installed a new fleet of skin-bronzing machines and sat back as so many clients flocked to their shop that the brothers were forced to open an entire store just to cater to their clients’ tanning demands. This was the birth of Sun Tan City. Today, what started as an experimental side business boasts more than 200 locations across 16 states.

The staff at each location maintains a meticulously clean space, where they show clients to UV beds dubbed fast, faster, fastest, and instant. The beds include features such as facial tanners and self-contained air conditioners. Alternatively, clients can opt for the UV-free, automated VersaSpa system, which swathes physiques in a DHA, plant-based bronzing solution. The liquid reacts naturally with skin’s amino acids, creating an even coat as radiant as the high beams on Helios’s chariot within 46 seconds.

Ignite Sunless Tanning's skin specialists know that spray tans look best when skin has been properly prepared. So they encourage clients to use their onsite showers and sea-salt scrubs or exfoliating towelettes before their tan. They also offer free pH balancing treatments before every sunless tan to create a darker, more natural tan. Those who want a custom airbrush tan can keep comfortable in a temperature-controlled room while the technician bronzes limbs.

1 Sun Tanning Salon imbues hue-free hides with sun-kissed glows using a variety of advanced tanning beds and airbrush spray tanning, and also targets unwanted weight with therapeutic infra-red saunas. With the infra-red sauna option, customers can unwind for 20-minute sessions in a cozy private booth while bathing in safe waves of heat that melt calories, soothe muscular aches, and increase blood circulation to purge body gremlins from their pore hidey-holes. Meanwhile, anyone seeking photoskinthesis can opt for one of the other options. A month of unlimited tanning in the salon's super-level tanning bed with 24–30 100-watt lamps provides the bronzing effects of tanning outdoors without the hassle of fending off squirrels aggressively selling timeshares. Alternately, for UV-free tanning, hue hunters can opt for the airbrush-tanning session, during which one of the salon's experienced staff members sprays on a smooth coat of natural-looking tan solution. This fast-drying, streak-free formula contains a medley of skin-friendly ingredients, including bronzer to extend the life of the tan, and caffeine to protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun and excessive slow-dancing in the arms of a dream king.

The trained staff at Ashley Lynn's Tanning welcomes first-time and returning clients to quality bronzing beds and UV-free VersaSpa tanning booths. The full-body and facial bulbs in tanning beds of various levels speed skin to all-over darkened shades in minutes without the hassle of canning sunbeams for the winter. Staff members swap out each lamp halfway through its lifetime, ensuring tanners won’t endure weakened wattage during their session. Alternatively, the studio's VersaSpa spray-tan booth comforts tanners with an open design and an air-filtration system as they customize their 10-minute sessions by selecting either clear spray-tanning or bronzer-tanning treatment. Each treatment achieves maximum color after 8 hours, and the booth also helps to moisturize skin.
